Single Target Rotation

Corruption, COA, Unstable Aff, Haunt ( used for opening, 2+ shards mid fight, and when boss health low), Drain Soul

   -sometimes I use haunt every other rotation(after it depletes) to boost dps by 100   ticks or so, instead of waiting to have atleast 2 shards before utilizing haunt again

   -I'm just now starting to routinely use dark soul:misery to boost haste whenever possible.

   - I don't utilize Demonic Circle nor Demonic Gateway​   

 

Hello to All Concerned,

 

I am new to posting topics on forums, but a veteran (since BC) in WoW. I took a break after early cata and came back in April. I will keep this short.

 

Avg Dps (via Recount): 22-24k

ilvl 698

 Optimized enchants toward Haste. I am utilizing PVE/PVP gear for stats.

 

Overall, taking into concept the extra dps I could gain by using demon circ and gateway, I should not receive reports of 22k dps when I'm actually trying. I restart Recount as well as ask for others recount data and it all states the general area of 22-24k. Would someone with experienced eyes open mine.

 

Thanks in advance

 

S.N. Ive always wanted to be the best Warlock ever, I don't do alts because I haven't mastered my main. I feel that if I can be considered one of the top wow players I can help those who are in my position now. Make sense?

You have taken Haunting Spirits as your level 100 talent yet on Socrethar you had an uptime of 5% on the buff and on Iskar you had 6%.

 

Now, in your current gear I'd say that you should probably be speccing into Demonic Servitude and using the Doomguard til you get comfortable, however if you want to stick with Haunting Spirits then you need to get into the habit of aiming for as close to 100% uptime as possible, whilst still maintaining regular haunt debuff during cooldowns. This will take some getting used to and preparation.

 

To help with this, you're going to want to be using addons such as Weakauras. Do you use any addons?

I do utilize add-ons but none warlock specific. I will definitely change this to where im at least using weakauras. as far as maintaining haunt, since i do want to keep the talent, would it be better to sacrifice Glyph of Siphon Life, for Glyph of Soul Swap to not only save a soul shard (technically, according to the soul shard recharge rate and supposed left over .35% of a shard)** but to maintain "buffed" dot ticks via the SoulBurn:Haunt talent?

 

**i researched that information from other topics that mentioned using weakauras as well before posting this topic. you solidified that i DO need the add-on.

...what?

 

You basically don't use SS at all really, like...ever. It is a very small gain to use once you have really good gear to get your dots out faster in the opener, but outside of that it is basically never touched.

 

You don't aim to maintain Haunt, you aim to maintain the buff from SB:Haunt. If  you can also keep haunt up it is a huge plus, but it isn't something you actively try to do if it means sacrificing other things.

 

You need 2 Soul Shards every 30 seconds for SB:H, getting those shards in suck gear is very hard. Once you get about 720ilvl and your HFC 4pc it will be HUGELY easier to do and make Aff a lot more valuable.

Since this topic says gear optimization in the title I'll write in here. I am conflicted on whether I should be gemming/enchanting haste or mastery. I see haste with a high value at my gear level(740) yet I feel like my numbers are better when I go full mastery rather than full haste. Any suggestions? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Roblinz/advanced

Haste is the best Aff single target stat, mastery is the best multi-dot. Since there isn't many purely single target fights in HFC and you don't always want to play Aff on every fight and Mastery is the best Destro and Demo stat, most people run pure mastery so they can do everything all the time.

 

However, if you want to run two sets of gear or regem for every other fight, you can.

 

TL;DR, gem/enchant mastery.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
